Preventive Dentistry: Your Path to a Problem-Free Smile
Preventive dentistry starts at home with conscientious brushing and flossing on your part. When you back up your hygiene efforts with dental exams and teeth cleanings at our Littleton dental office every six months, you are well on your way to your healthiest smile.
Even if you are not experiencing any problems, you still need to schedule dental exams and teeth cleanings at Platte Canyon Dental every six months, or as recommended. Seeing you at regular intervals allows Dr. Linn to look for cavities and gum disease (gingivitis) that often develop without any symptoms.
The Dangers of Gum Disease
Untreated gum disease is a bacterial infection that damages your oral health by gradually breaking down the bone that supports your teeth and putting you at risk for tooth loss. Worse yet, gum disease is an inflammation that also jeopardizes your general health and is linked to serious systemic conditions like heart and respiratory disease, diabetes, strokes, arthritis, and cancer.
Gingivitis is the first stage of gum disease, and if we do not catch it soon enough, it can develop into periodontitis. We provide gum disease treatment at our Littleton dental office for both stages, and Dr. Linn will work with you to come up with a treatment plan to get your gums back to their optimal health.
